Chris from Kenya on Today
“We’re driving!” Chris told us today in the playroom as he and his friend Gift sat on their bikes. Chris finds great entertainment from life and thankfully that includes life at the hospital. He makes friends in a snap and then spends his time playing and running and doing other fun things with them. Hopefully he’ll have surgery soon but until then we’re excited for him to just enjoy himself while he’s around CURE Kenya!

Mitchelle from Kenya on Today
“Do you want to be in the photo?” we asked Nelly the scrub tech and got a “Yes!” Turns out Nelly was just Mitchelle-sitting for the PACU nurse who helps patients recover and Nelly soon resumed her normal job. That’s how it goes here at CURE Kenya -- there is lots of teamwork and helping each other out! Mitchelle has been in good hands so far and already her surgery is over and done with and now she can rest her way into a healed foot. Please pray for her as she does this!

Mitchelle had a visit from Bea the physiotherapist today and Bea joked as Sarah tried to encourage Mitchelle to do what Bea said to do with goodies like yogurt. Mitchelle needs an x-ray to check on her hip along with one of her feet. We’ll see what the x-rays tell the doctors and then we can update more tomorrow when our new little friend will hopefully go into surgery!

Arthur from Kenya on Yesterday
In our physio room there’s a special (gigantic) photo of a very cute little boy trying to tie his shoe and that very cute little boy is Arthur! After seeing the physio and learning he needs new shoes, we took Arthur, his mom, and Arthur’s very cute twin sister into the room and showed them. His mom was thrilled, said it was ‘smart,’ and even let us steal photos of the three of them with the picture! It’ll be a little while before Arthur masters the art of shoe tying like in his special photo, but when we see him in January he’ll be a little closer to being a master!

Stephen from Kenya on Yesterday
Stephen brought Auntie and Mom today and then he cruised around the OPD as he waited to be seen. This little dude has got confidence and he walks so well! He’s also talking in a funny little people language and when we see him on December 3rd, maybe we’ll even be able to have a big people conversation! Probably so since he’s well on his way to becoming a big person after getting new braces today!

Leah from Kenya on Yesterday
Hospitals seem to be hard for Leah. Tears can’t help but come when she’s here. Thankfully yogurt is magical and helped her tears subside some as Alice, our OT, tried Leah’s braces on her. Leah won’t need new braces for a little while longer and other than her sad tears, she’s doing fabulous in her progress! We’ll catch her next in December!

The worries of the ‘stone change’ have become so yesterday because our lady has GONE HOME!!! We’re really happy for her and it’s all because of our big God and your prayers. Thanks for praying and we’ll catch you up on our girl’s progress at the end of October when she comes back for a cast change! (sorry we couldn’t share a photo today — she was so excited to leave, she left before we had a chance to say hi).

Rose from Kenya on Sep 13, 2018
Yesterday's quote "she is doing very well -- we thank God" became even more of a reality today because our girl went HOME!!! She was really missing her mom in the morning and not feeling up for a photo and when we went back to check on her later, she had already left! We're sorry we can't share a photo from today, but the reason we can't is a reason to praise Jesus! We'll see her on October 24th when she comes back to CURE Kenya.

“I was just encouraging her and telling her that today there wouldn’t be any pain because they were only going to remove the stone,” Storyteller Elvis explained to us. Tabby was nervous today as she waited for her cast change, so Elvis tried his best to assure her that all would be well. He also told us something kind of funny: calling a cast a ‘stone’ is one of the easiest ways to describe it to a kiddo. It makes sense to them! Please pray for Tabby as she waits with her new ‘stone’ to go home.

Elizabeth from Kenya on Sep 12, 2018
Kitale clinic was extremely busy with over 168 patients! Elizabeth came late and was number 150. She was very tired and sleepy and we had to intervene for we know the distance she covered from home. She is doing well walking on crutches. The cast was removed and recasted. She is to be reviewed after two weeks at CURE Kenya on 26th September.

Cynthia from Kenya on Sep 12, 2018
The smile on Cynthia's face is precious. She smiled at us when we wanted to check out whether the tooth is back, but, like a the surgery, it takes time. Cynthia is doing well. The main purpose of her coming was to get her AFO shoe to be repaired. She has been struggling to walk due to her worn out orthotic. She got all fixed up by Purity, our ortho technician, and she went home a happy girl. We hope to see her again on 14th November for her next appointment. Lets continue to pray for her.

Martha from Kenya on Sep 12, 2018
“Martha, put your hands how you were taught last time.” Rosemary said to Martha. Martha was shown how to place her hands on her thighs while she is seated the last time she came to CURE Kenya for review. So her shoshone reminded her to do it before we took her picture. “Martha doesn’t need another surgery at the moment because she is doing very well as she is currently.” Rosemary was told by the doctor who saw Martha. Now Martha just needs to be observed and we will see her during the next clinic in her hometown.

Denzel from Kenya on Sep 12, 2018
It was really awesome to catch up with Denzel after a few weeks. We asked him what he was up to all that time he was away and he said, “I just went to school everyday and went back home.” We were happy to hear about school and that he was doing well. Today, Denzel had his wound checked and dressing changed. His mum was also encouraged to take good care of his surgical wound to avoid any infections. Denzel was given some medicine which he’ll take to help his wound heal. Kindly pray that Denzel will be healed and he’ll go to school without a big hustle.

Keren from Kenya on Sep 12, 2018
“Keren still can’t go to school because there are a few things she is still struggling to do like squatting to use the toilet.” Keren’s mum said, expressing her concern. We asked her to make sure she mentions this to the doctor during Keren’s review. We also asked if Keren had some books she could read at home and study as she waits to go back to school. Keren's mum told us she has a few, but concentrating at home was hard compared to school. Friends, Keren needs your prayers. Please ask God to heal her completely so that she can go to school without fear of ridicule from other kids.

When we got to Tabby’s bed, we found Penninah cleaning up the bed because Tabitha had just finished eating a biscuit. A moment later, Tabby got tired of sitting up so she asked her mum to put her down so she could rest. Tabitha had a calm night and we thank God for that. She might have her cast change today or tomorrow and then she will be on her way home!

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
